Play It Again

Album: Crash My Party (2013)
Charted: 14
  • She was sittin' all alone over on the tailgate
    Tan legs swingin' by a Georgia plate
    I was lookin' for her boyfriend
    Thinkin', no way she ain't got one
    Soon as I sat down I was fallin' in love
    Tryin' to pour a little sugar in her Dixie cup
    Talkin' over the speakers in the back of that truck
    She jumped up and cut me off

    She was like, oh my God, this is my song
    I've been listenin' to the radio all night long
    Sittin' 'round waitin' for it to come on and here it is
    She was like, come here boy, I wanna dance
    'Fore I said a word, she was takin' my hand
    Spinnin' me around 'til it faded out
    And she gave me a kiss
    And she said, play it again, play it again, play it again
    And I said, play it again, play it again, play it again

    I'd have gave that DJ my last dime
    If he would have played it just one more time
    But a little while later
    We were sittin' in the drive in my truck
    Before I walked her to the door
    I was scannin' like a fool AM, FM, XM too
    But I stopped real quick when I heard that groove
    Man, you should have seen her light up

    She was like, oh my God, this is my song
    We've been listenin' to the radio all night long
    I can't believe it came back on, but here it is
    She was like, come here boy, I wanna dance
    'Fore I said a word, she was takin' my hand
    Spinnin' in the headlights she gave me a goodnight kiss
    And I said, play it again, play it again, play it again
    And she said, play it again, play it again, play it again

    The next Friday night we were sittin' out under the stars
    You should have seen her smile when I brought out my guitar

    She was like, oh my God, this is my song
    I've been listenin' to the radio all night long
    Sittin' 'round waitin' for it to come on and here it is
    She was like, come here boy, I wanna dance
    'Fore I said a word, she was takin' my hand
    Spinnin' in the headlights
    She gave me a goodnight kiss
    And she said, play it again, play it again, play it again
    And I said, play it again, play it again, play it again

    Yeah, play it again, play it again, play it again
    Somebody, play it again, play it again, play it again Writer/s: Ashley Glenn Gorley, Gerald Dallas Davidson
